Cattle Receipts were, heavy again, esti
mated early at 12,000 head, or 81,190 head
for the two days. Very little business wss
done by mid-forenoon and prospects were
that trading would be on a basis of 1525c
lower than last week. Desirable cornfed
beeves were very scarce and about steady,
ranging anywhere from $15.0018.00. Bulk
of the butcher stock was selling from $7.60
9.00 and quotably 25c lower than yester
day. Stockers were very much demoralized,
prices ranging anywhere from $6.60ffl)9.60.

Hogs There was a fairly liberal run of
hogs today, compared with recent receipts,
145 loads, estimated at 10.300 bead. Shippers
did not have so many orders this morning,
and were a little more discriminating in
their choice of loads, while a few sales
early were reported steady, they lowered
their bids, reductions of 15ifT25o being re
ported in some cases. Packers were bearish
this morning and purchased their loads
fully 10 15c lower. The market was a
very uneven affair mostly 1016o lower,
with a few late sales considered 20 iff 25c
lower, closing weak. Bulk is $18.10018.40;
Sheep 3 loads of sheep wera reported
In todav. estimated at 10.000 head The
market was a little slow In getting under
way. While no early sales were made, sen
timent seemed to be that fat lambs would
at least be steady and perhaps stronger.
Prospects were not so bright for feeders.
Aged stuff was about steady. Briefly the
general market might be described steady
on fat lambs, weak on feeders and steady

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Corn Advance Halts as Large nouses Switch
to Selling Side of Market.
Chicago. Aug. 6. Belief that the bullish
effects of the hot wave have been suffi
ciently discounted for the time being had
a restraining Influence In the corn market
today. New advances In prlca took place,
but were not held. The close was unsettled,
lKc lowsr to He gain, with September
81.61 to 81.63 and October $1.63.
Oats finished o off to Uc up, and pro
visions varying from 15c decline to a rise
Not only did the buying of corn lack
urgency, but It was plain that many large
commission houses had switched to the
selling side of the market. The principal
demand cams from shorts, and baa the
upturns In valuea did not have aubstanlal
backing. Continued torrid weathor and the
absence of rain moreover were somewhat
offset by the possibility that storms from
the northwest or from the gulf would
penetrate the corn belt, and would afford
at least parlal relief from the danger from
crop damage. Besides, the trade showed
considerable disposition to await the gov
ernment weather and crop reports duo
tomorrow, and not to risk exaggerating the
prospective curtalmen of yield.
Oats were swayed almost entirely by the
action of corn.

NEW YORK STOCKS
Business Improves nd Broad
ens, but Market Reflects
Uncertain Mood of Pro
New York. Aug. 6. The stock market to
day reflected the more uncertain mood of
professional operators, yesterday's late ad
vance being partly cancelled.
Trailers apparently deemed tt advisable
to adopt a more conservative course In view
of the notice Issued by the local federal
reserve bank urging financial Institutions
to conserve credits.
On the surface this was without mate
rial effect, money rates holding at recent
quotations It was generally believed,
however, that time funds soon may be en
tirely withdrawn from the market, for
other than productive purposes.
Business was broader and mors active
than on the previous day, but noteworthy
movements were again restricted to spe
cialties. I'nltcd Stntes Steel made Its best price
at tho opening, repeating Its recent maxi
mum of no. but reacting at 1 points,
with only a nominal rally
Independent steel and the active equip
ments lost 1 to 1 points, shippings about
as much and oils about 1 point. Transpor
tations played no part In the day'a dealings,
Ths bond market was mixed, Internation
als showing a stronger trend, while domes
tio shares eased Irregularly. Total sales,
par value, aggregated $6,625,000. Old U. S.

Against Justice Leeder
Attorney Barrett filed a complaint
Tuesday with the county commis
sioners against Edward Leeder, jus
tice of the peace in Florence, asking '.
that he be required to appear and
justify his bond. The matter was

Barrett stated that before Florence :'
was made a part of Omaha Leeder
had been a justice of the peace for '
the district outside the city. His term '
had expired, and about a year ago he
had been appointed by the commis

mercial club. "Early in the year
cards were sent out to the patrons of '
I the various schools asking if they .-'L
were interested in using the plants ;
and very few responded.''
1ms is a bad year for vegetable,
drying," said J. VV. Ihms, government
expert in gardening stationed in Oma- 1
ha. 'The hot winds finished the vege- '
tables early in the season. Fruit suit- '
able for drying did not do well, eith- "
er. Those who put up fruit or vege
tables earlier in the year are lucky. ,
The government is planning to requi
sition 60 per cent of the product of .

cause a shortage on the market
